Baltimore officer shoots man grabbing for his gun
By Gus G. Sentementes
Two plainclothes police officers patrolling for drug activity stopped a man in a West Baltimore alley yesterday, and one officer shot him after he grabbed the other officer's gun, city police said.
A fight broke out between the man and one of the officers, and a preliminary investigation showed that the other officer shot the man several times after the man gained control of the other officer's gun, police said.
The man was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, and his condition was not immediately available last night. The names of the man and the officers, who were placed on administrative duties pending the outcome of an internal investigation, were not immediately released.
